This best western was pretty centrally located about 15 minutes from the casino with lots of fast food and stores near by. It was pretty clean except the shower curtain had mildew and the room had a musty smell the front desk clerk gave us a new shower curtain and some air freshener she said she was the only one...

Large, two compartment KingSuite. Two tvs. Business center has two computers. Fitness room nicely furnished. Upscale furniture. Lobby is very nice andmodern. Breakfast room nicely equipped. Area is devoid of restaurants unless you count Taco Bell and Burger King. Not in a nice area of town; indiustrial and eroding. Not much more to say. Good stop when travelling through

Excellent stay, all staff was friendly and polite. On check out my teenage son left a very expensive pair of shoes in the room. We realized and turned around immediately.... One of the housekeepers had brought them down stairs and was waiting, watching for us to come back. I am highly impressed with her honesty and character! We will definitely... More

It's not often I give an excellent score on a hotel unless they really deserve it. I think this is the 3rd one I've given on the 24th day of our trip. What I really like about this hotel is that the entire property is fenced which gives extra security. The grounds are spotless and the landscaping is very tastefully... More

Loved the appearence the hotel looked very inviting. We had asked for help in giving directions at the front desk and the gentleman was very knowledged of the area, The helpful staff had the rooms very clean, the beds were very comfortable and their rates are very affortable. I would come again when we have a trip to Louisiana.

Room was fine needed more regular coffee in room. Staff was pleasant and well groomed and dressed. Over all appearance of hotel was good. Breakfast had several options to choose from. Room was a good size with the exception of the bathroom, sink was in the sleeping area and lighting for makeup application was lacking.

Upon check in I was greeted by a gentleman named Andre. He was very welcoming. It was very cold upon entering my room, so I called and he brought me extra blankets. The heater warmed up quickly. The room was spotless; bed was very comfy. Will return if ever in the area. Very satisfied.

We arrived early and they were able to get us checked in and to our room. Staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is further from the Golden Nugget Casino than thought 15-20 min. We were a bit nervous about the hotel when all of the surrounding businesses had burglar bars and the hotel was completely ring fenced, appeared to... More

The outside of this hotel is superb and so is the lobby. At check the clerk was very friendly and made us feel at home but there is this guy who just stands around watching and once you walk away you hear him giving direction. He did that our entire stay. Very awkward. He just watched and kind of stood... More

When we checked in late at night staff was very help and had all rooms ready to go. The Hotel is convieniently located just off I10. But is about 7 to 8 miles away from the Golden nugget casino we were headed for. At checkout time is 11am which is little early comparatively, with kids we expected we would have... More
